2nd Amendment Under Attack in SC County | THE JEENYUS CORNER

 

THE JEENYUS CORNER

The Dorchester County Council has introduced a new law, slated for its third reading at tonight’s council meeting, that will make it illegal for a person to discharge a firearm within 500 feet of a county road. If this measure meets no opposition at tonight’s reading, it will become law.

The county council meeting is at 7 p.m. in council chambers at the Kenneth F. Waggoner building in St. George. Click here for a map.

Many heart-wrenching examples have been given by the County Council as to why this new law is needed. As is always the case, there are tragic stories of bad things that have happened to people – leading to the false conclusion that we must pass this new law, or else. A story was told of a mailbox that was blown to smithereens and a more serious story was told of a child that was hit with a bullet from a neighboring home which was shot accidentally during gun cleaning. Those things are awful, indeed, but does that mean we throw the second amendment out the window?

The fact is that this new law is completely unnecessary, it blurs the line on self defense, and it is an encroachment on the second amendment to the US Constitution that can (and will) be used to further strip gun rights from the law abiding citizens of Dorchester County.
